A Third Disney Worker Dies At Florida Park

A 30-year-old performer at Disney World is dead after rehearsing for a stunt show, the third worker to die in seven weeks at the Orlando, Fla., park.

Anislav Varbanov was pronounced dead late Monday at a hospital after injuring his head while rehearsing a tumbling roll for the "Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular."

A Disney spokeswoman said the company mourned Varbanov's death.

The stunt show was cancelled Tuesday in his memory.

The death comes a week after a 47-year-old performer died following an on-stage fall during another show, "Captain Jack's Pirate Tutorial."

And on July 5, a 21-year-old monorail driver died when another train crashed into his own.
